Beaches: With beach clubs--all over the West side and 4-5 on the East side. Beautiful beaches with nobody around--East side, the earlier the better.
Have a fun and safe trip!

Scooters on Cozumel are very dangerous. A trip to the hospital is really not the way to spend Spring Break.
Here's a link to our favorite rental place:
The owners name is Margarita. She will take great care of you.

The woman could no longer dive, because her injuries from the accident included a punctured lung, along with broken ribs, a think a bruised liver and I can't recall what else, but they were extensive.
I just not worth the risk for the few bucks you might save over renting a car.

If your friends insist then I would strongly suggest they carry the following information on them:
Hotel they are staying at
Medication they are currently taking
Allergic reactions to any med's
Next of Kin (with phone numbers)
High credit limit on their credit card
Copy of their passport, and Visa
Copy of their tourist insurance
Where they want to be Medi-Vaced too (that can cost between $9K to 35K)
Rent anything that has 4 wheels...
The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

I personally saw two scooter wreaks the last time I was there and it was locals both times. With tourists it's really dangerous. Here's the deal....if the island were totally deserted and only one person was there riding a scooter, it would still be dangerous because people get distracted by animals and scenery and the next thing they know they are wheels up doing the cheese grader thing on the highway. Worse yet is having two or more people riding in a group, and when you add traffic, the odds of getting hurt, or worse, just aren't in your favor.
One of the spots that gets regular ambulance pickups is just south of town on the old road where the road does an S-curve and suddenly you break out from the trees and get your first glimpse of this view before losing control...

Kids will do all kinds of dumb stuff if you just let them do whatever they want.

Dude where we were staying got wiped out on that road. A pothole took him out.
Broken collarbone, rashed side and up leg. I asked the guy what happened but I already knew...

Here's a link to pecosgirl's story.
I broke both collarbones a year apart when I was a kid. Yeah, it hurts a lot when you break your collarbone.
There was a silver lining to mine... I'm left handed and broke that one first, so I had to do everything right handed.
Then I broke the right one and switched back. As a result I'm really ambidextrous... I do lots of stuff right handed.
The weirdest one is serving a volleyball left handed and a tennis ball right handed.
